IE 11 with Windchill 10 and Creo 2

IE 11 with Windchill 10 and Creo 2

In testing for Windchill 11, I had IT install IE 11.

In an external web browser, I have no issues with IE 11 and Windchill 10.

In the embedded Creo browser, I cannot get the workspace to load.

Is there a work around for this condition?

Some setting in IE11 that will force it to behave like IE 8 or 9?

I can capture the long runing script errors and post later, if needed.

Re: IE 11 with Windchill 10 and Creo 2

One of the reason may be you are using IE 11 in Enterprise mode.

 

IE11 Enterprise mode is not supported with Windchill 11.0, so need to change it to Edge Mode. Check with your IT Team for same and ask them to exclude Windchill URL from Enterprise mode.

Refer PTC CS218340  for more details.

 

 

Re: IE 11 with Windchill 10 and Creo 2

You can try to use the setting "Сompatibility View" in Internet Explorer 11.

 

Re: IE 11 with Windchill 10 and Creo 2

Compatibility mode works fine for IE11 on an external browser.

My issues is with the internal Creo browser which does not work with IE11!

Re: IE 11 with Windchill 10 and Creo 2

We updated Windchill from 10.1-M020 to 10.1-M050 to be able to work with IE11&Creo2

Re: IE 11 with Windchill 10 and Creo 2

Doesn't help, I am on WC 10.0 m040 with my testing to get us to WC11 m030. No time to do an upgrade within the 10.x range of Windchill.

 

Re: IE 11 with Windchill 10 and Creo 2

Internet Explorer 11 as a embedded browser:

  • Supported with Creo Parametric 2.0 M100 and Creo Parametric 3.0 F000 on Windows 7
  • Supported with Creo Parametric 2.0 M100 and Creo Parametric 3.0 F000 on Windows 8.1

I believe you are using Creo 2 due to which you are facing an issues here.

Re: IE 11 with Windchill 10 and Creo 2

I am running Creo 2 m220 on Windows 7 64bit.

I have no issues with IE 11 as an external browser for Windchill 10.0 m040.

I do get script errros when I open a workspace in the embedded browser.

Is there a setting in IE11 that will work with Windchill10.0?

 

Re: IE 11 with Windchill 10 and Creo 2

officially IE 11 is not supported with Windchill 10.0  https://support.ptc.com/WCMS/files/124477/en/Windchill10.0M050SoftwareMatrices030414.pdf.

I am not sure how it is running for standalone browser on your server.

Are you getting this script error on embedded browser?

Script Error
An error has occurred in the script on this page.

Re: IE 11 with Windchill 10 and Creo 2

I am aware that IE11 is not supportted, but I needed it to test Windchill 11.

Caught between 2 systems is a pain.

 

I get 6 script errors when I open a workspace in the embedded browser.

I select Yes on all these messages and then I get a blank workspace area with a spinning cog wheel at the top.

 

Re: IE 11 with Windchill 10 and Creo 2

  1. Click the CLOSE button to close the error message - Find Internet Explorer options/tools - Choose Compatibility View Settings - Add URL of site - Accept changes and close- Refresh the page and try to open the site now.
  2. If the issue still persists, try to change the settings in Internet Explorer and check.
    • Open Internet Explorer, click on Tools - Click on Internet Options, click Advanced tab - Make sure there is a check mark for these options. "Disable script debugging (InternetExplorer)" "Disable script debugging (Other)" - Uncheck "Display notification about every script error", click on Apply and Ok - Restart the Internet Explorer and check the issue.

See if this works

Re: IE 11 with Windchill 10 and Creo 2

Did not help.

There is no way to get the inetrnal embedded browser to open the setting mode with F12.

 

Re: IE 11 with Windchill 10 and Creo 2

You can change a browser type in your Creo config properties file.

Re: IE 11 with Windchill 10 and Creo 2

It seems that IE 11 is suportted on Creo2, according to the Hardware notes.

 

IE 11.0 is supported on Creo 2.0 M100 and later on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10.

Now I just have to get the right IE11 settings!

Re: IE 11 with Windchill 10 and Creo 2

What is your option for windows_browser_type in config.pro, in my config.pro

windows_browser_type = ie_in_sep_process  and I don't have any problem.

And I added two rows in my bat file, it looks next way:

================

@echo off
set PTC_SUPPRESS_RESTART_AWARE=true
set BROWSER_RESTART_ATTEMPT_NUM=1
"C:\PTC\Creo 2.0\Parametric\bin\parametric.exe" "C:\PTC\Creo 2.0\Parametric\bin\Creo2-Flex3C.psf" %*

===============

Re: IE 11 with Windchill 10 and Creo 2

I had the same issue when upgrading from Win 7 to Win 10 with Windchill 10.1 M030 .Here is what works for me.

Change embedded browser option to be Either Moxilla or Chromium.

Use the configuration option windows_browser_type to specify the web
browser engine used in the Creo browser.

"windows_browser_type" should be changed to 'mozilla_based_browser' or 'chromium_browser'.
